The conflict between UNRA management and its employees reaches Sheikh Jarrah in Jerusalem | Israel Hayom


UNRA union workers in Yosh broke into the agency's headquarters in Sheikh Jarrah in Jerusalem • They barricade themselves in the place and prevent management representatives from working from there • The background: demands for a salary increase • Palestinian sources: "Israel will not accept that people like this suddenly take over territory under its sovereignty, and Onr" A may lose her property in Jerusalem"

UNRWA (the United Nations Relief and Employment Agency for Palestine Refugees) employees in the Palestinian Authority have taken over the agency's office complex located in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of Jerusalem and are not allowing management representatives to enter it due to disputes over employment conditions and wage increases, according to Palestinian sources.

The labor dispute between the UNRA management and the workers' union broke out about two months ago and gradually escalated. The workers demanded an increase in their wages as well as a change in the employment agreements of the clerks employed on a daily basis. They announced a series of protest measures, as part of which they even decided to prevent the representatives of the donor countries and UNRWA personnel abroad from visiting At UNRA institutions in Yosh.

The protest reached its peak in recent days after about 20 UNRA workers broke into the agency's headquarters in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.

"The protesting workers barricade themselves in the place in a way that disrupts the work of UNRA.

They are holding the building and the entire UNRA headquarters in Sheikh Jarrah in Jerusalem hostage, and are taking powers as if the building were their private property," the sources said.
